The Museum: Collection and Display

Enjoy an unforgettable journey of artistic discovery in the heart of this village of painters! The new Museum of Pont-Aven offers an original, dynamic and enriching experience for the entire family. The display in-cludes around 200 paintings and graphic artworks, immersing visitors in the aesthetic style of the famous “Pont-Aven School”, characterised by blocks of pure colour and simplified forms separated by contours. Va-rious educational multimedia tools enable visitors to understand the ar-tistic energy which blossomed in Pont-Aven at the end of the 19th century thanks to Paul Gauguin, Émile Bernard, Paul Sérusier and Maurice Denis.

TEMPORARY EXHIBITIONS 2018

February 2, 2018 > january 6, 2019

Pont-Aven, cradle of modernity - collection of Alexandre Mouradian

The Museum of Pont-Aven presents the story of an artistic revolution initiated between 1888 and 1894: synthetism, based on the use of pure colours in flat tint and with outlines as in stained-glass windows. Around Émile Bernard and Paul Gauguin, the group of artists who use these principles is called “École de Pont-Aven” (“Pont-Aven School”). In 2018, Alexandre Mouradian, a philanthro-pist collector, goes into a partnership with the Museum by lending 23 pieces of his personal collection dedicated to Gauguin’s friends. This previously unseen collection is exclusively presented at the Museum of Pont-Aven within the permanent exhibition area, thus completely renewing the hanging on the 3rd level. Works of Émile Bernard, Émile Jourdan, Maxime Maufra, Henry Moret, Ro-deric O’Conor, Éric Forbes-Robertson, Armand Seguin, Paul Sérusier, Wladyslaw Slewinski and Jan Verkade will be displayed.

March 10 > june 10, 2018

Cobra, or the spontaneity of colour

Founded in Paris, on November 8, 1945, in the café du Notre-Dame Hôtel in Paris, the European group Cobra (contraction of Copenhagen, Brussels, Amsterdam) gathers, from 1948 to 1951, artists and writers claiming a complete freedom of creation. This artistic cry for colours and freedom resonates with the legacy of Pont-Aven School. By stating that artists can dare anything in their paintings, Paul Gauguin has paved the way to Cobra’s “spontaneous colourism”. Accor-ding to this group, art expresses a personal vision of an imaginary world sepa-rated from the real world. This exhibition shows the persistence of the spirit of Cobra within the second half of the 20th century, as well as its international dimension. Paintings, drawings, poems, sculptures and documentary films show the diversity of Cobra’s artistic expression. This exhibition is organised in partnership with the Musée de Tessé in Le Mans.

Le Talisman, a prophecy of colour

In 1888, Paul Gauguin gives painting lessons to Paul Sérusier, who paints a co-lourful and nearly abstract representation of the Bois d’Amour in Pont-Aven. Back to Paris, Sérusier presents his work to the future “Nabi” artists (nabi mea-ning “prophet” in Hebrew). The painting becomes the group’s “Talisman” and their manifesto, as this group advocates, in Gauguin’s wake, liberation from reality and the use of pure colours. This exhibition presents the story of this iconic painting kept in the collections of the Musée d’Orsay in Paris. Based on the latest research on this subject, the exhibition recounts the creation context, the place of this painting within the work of Sérusier and its relationships with the work of the Nabi artists. The exhibition also focuses on the material histo-ry of this small oil painting on wood, an unfinished work of format 27 x 21 cm, whose Maurice Denis overemphasised the improvised aspect by comparing it to a cigar box. Finally, this exhibition also deals with the story of the painting’s reception by the artists and critics at the time, and also its artistic posterity throughout the 20th century. This presentation is based on the rich collections of the Musée d’Orsay related to the Pont-Aven School and the Nabi, as well as the collections of the Museum of Pont-Aven. Some other works have been ex-ceptionally lent by some French museums and private collections.
